  • 09:35 ZOMG! argh! have just been asked to organise a solar cooking activity for 300 scouts this weekend. This weekend! LOL. #
  • 09:39 @aeoth AAMD done last.FM style? That would work. Probably want scrapers from personal DVD collection library software as well for a boost #
  • 09:44 @aeoth heh. that’s be great, but who’d eat the scouts after we cooked them? #
  • 10:39 Currently Browsing: www.foxmarks.com/firefox/upgrade/2.5.3 Wow – foxmarks now adds password sync, checking it out now #
  • 10:51 Oh noes – mah phone don’t wanna be workin’ no more, very temperamental. #
  • 12:38 had lunch with non-twitter friends. Finding it hard to keep up with them, which really isn’t a good thing … #
  • 12:43 @Entregreeneur I think the trouble is that kids have fewer and fewer places to let go and be kids. We wrap ’em all in too much cotton wool! #
  • 12:47 RT @allisonr New blog post: Getting To Know You tinyurl.com/5ax29r [interesting link to core strength eval tool] #
  • 12:49 @Entregreeneur oh in no way do I excuse the awful behaviour, just noticing things from my POV as Scout leader who’d like more to join πŸ™‚ #
  • 12:55 my Nokia E65 has been playing up – it is working right now so I’m syncing everything to the Mac to make sure I’m up to date. Do you sync? #
  • 13:12 @artywah I sync with MobileMe – or at least I should, it seems to be having trouble πŸ™‚ #
  • 13:16 @artywah how do you find Plaxo these days? Is good/useful/painless? #
  • 14:58 RT @seancarmody Wiki Wednesday coming up on 12th November in Sydney tinyurl.com/56y6el #
  • 15:00 filled with petrol at a Coles Express : counter guy asks for savings docket, then slags off the docket system & says shop at Aldi instead! #
  • 15:03 @smperris standard practice for Sydney residential leases? I always ask for 12 mths but usually am offered 6 to start with. #
  • 15:04 @ApostrophePong fingers crossed for you – here’s hoping the project has come together nicely! #
  • 15:08 RT @pixel8ted interesting list. tinyurl.com/64puzn [scary big list!] #
  • 15:09 RT @politics_in_aus Malcolm Turnbull is caught using Twitter in Parliament. #
  • 15:10 Lookout – @Headwellred is on a squirrel grip rampage! Cross your legs peeps! #
  • 15:18 @halans Oohh, Ignite Spatial another great event for that night : www.ignitespatial.com/ – more duelling tech events in Sydney! #
  • 15:25 RT @docbaty RT @flashman: My latest mashup: NSW Food Authority penalty notices on Google Maps tinyurl.com/5lyt3q Love the interwebs #
  • 15:40 RT @Headwellred what is the scariest is the list is only march to august [tinyurl.com/64puzn] #
  • 15:41 @01000101 you must let go of this obsessive need to read everthing – dip your toes into the Twitsream when you can, allow the rest to pass #
  • 15:44 @freygan easy to say, much harder to do. I struggle all the time with the history of my Twistream πŸ™‚ #
  • 15:47 I see a hole in the data of @flashman’s gMap mashup of NSW Food Authority penalty notices tinyurl.com/5lyt3q – centered on nth ryde #
  • 15:49 @01000101 I understand completely. Of course it is your choice, I can only speak from my experience of being happier letting some tweets go. #
  • 16:03 @01000101 that is a great way to handle the deluge, for sure. Trouble is I keep finding interesting new people to follow 😦 #
  • 16:04 @bck happy birthday from the future! #
  • 16:14 @eskimo_sparky @gregdwyer you guys are such teases. Now I have to sit on the edge of every seat until you announce! Argh [falls off chair] #
  • 16:15 @01000101 indeed – I’m coming to think of Twitter as a mirror in many ways, everyone sees something different. #
  • 16:45 @neerav with Atlassian pimping, Wiki wed should get a good turnout. #
  • 17:26 only 11 updates, last was April 9th, but I have to subscribe to @StephenHawking #
  • 17:47 See Little Shop of Horrors this weekend – Berowra Musical society : http://www.bmsi.org.au for info #
  • 20:32 @markdavidson Quub.com sounds interesting – let us know how it stands up after a few days of use! #
  • 20:49 @problogger you know you can embed your friendfeed in your own page right? Would that work for you? #
  • 21:01 TiVo now recording Artscape while we check out tonight’s NCIS … PVRs FTW! #
  • 21:04 Err, where the FRAK did this rain in Sydney come from? Who ordered it huh? #
  • 21:17 @bmn Aldi will sell their Akoya for $599 starting Thursday. I’m led to believe it is a rebadged MSI Wind. See aldi.com.au for specs #
  • 21:24 @smperris what makes you lean towards the ASUS over the MSI? #
  • 21:38 @smperris Hmm, after reading bit.ly/3KjmaT I thought the MSI/Akoya was ahead on the OS X compatibility stakes … #
  • 21:54 OS X on the Asus EEE PC 1000H tinyurl.com/6ytt8o vs. MSI Wind/Akoya E1210 bit.ly/3KjmaT (from Aldi tinyurl.com/55258s) #
  • 21:58 @smperris Agreed – the sound lacking on both is curious, but also likely solved (fingers crossed for the OSx86 guys bit.ly/3tGRz4) #
  • 22:10 @bmn @smperris I was going to shop for a second hand Macbook but the Akoya will do the job of a more portable OS X for writing & email… #
  • 22:17 RT @NathanaelB Love @andrewsayer’s comment on News.com.au @turnbullmalcolm article re zombies tinyurl.com/4xprhc #
  • 22:25 @pixel8ted nope, but no sound is OK for the portability … #
  • 22:26 RT @kcarruthers yet another way Oz TV does not "get" it bit.ly/2wfaYl [I guess we’ve been using twitter for this so far…] #
  • 22:31 @pixel8ted all sound not working, some people are ‘solving’ this with AirTunes, but that’s not really a solution… #
  • 22:34 @aqualung big difference – they control the sync so you can gather a group and watch it online (as I read it) which would work for non-techs #
  • 22:35 @kcarruthers that is a no brainer now. Remember the Olympics? or @mpesce & The New Inventors each week? I love the idea, bring it on! #
  • 23:39 Get today’s Zazz direct from the source? bit.ly/2TaPHV Small solar charger US$10 with mobile phone/usb adapters #

  • 11:20 somehow I’ve drifted into the wrong timezone – I seem to be off about 6 hrs or so. How should I go about resetting to Sydney time? #
  • 11:27 @dekrazee1 Oh yes, you need to follow both. @malcolmturnbull for the lulz and @turnbullmalcolm in case he actually joins the community #
  • 11:28 @jjprojects Christmas decorations have been in the shops for a long time already. I’ve given up railing against it… #
  • 11:29 @mbalara good idea – the sun really would be the key wouldn’t it. Must get off arse and get outdoors more. #
  • 11:40 Now going down periscope again for the usual Monday madness – few hours work, then invent a quickfire programme to run for scouts tonight! #
  • 12:36 showing off my new avatar – the amazing shrinking beard. Must do a time series of the shrink then the mo’ … #

  • 14:05 Putting my money where my mouth is – have switched super from balanced to high growth. #
  • 14:09 @lachlanhardy now that’s an interesting tactic. How often does someone re-follow after a block/unblock? #
  • 14:11 @Maab I’m following Warren Buffet’s lead in part – taking a 5 to 10 year horizon, buying good companies now will pay off #
  • 14:55 out of curiosity : does anyone know how many businesses in Australia lodge their BAS electronically? #
  • 15:01 @aeoth Wow – the IMDB still provides all the data in text? That’s awesome, I assumed it went away *years* ago … #
  • 15:09 The AUD now buys .7070 USD, been creeping up all afternoon. Buy now? Perhaps… #
  • 15:09 @jkerrstevens Cool, thanks for the pointer, now I know where to go rummaging πŸ™‚ #
  • 15:15 @shanegold Interesting article – of course it depends on whether you’re buying or selling USD πŸ™‚ #
  • 15:17 @aeoth if you allow peeps to export their data, that would full of win. #
  • 15:21 @jkerrstevens good to know, thanks, this was more of a curiosity query at this stage … watching a small biz get their monthly BAS ready πŸ™‚ #
  • 15:25 @Froosh welcome to my world. It’s all just a dog’s breakfast isn’t it? #
  • 15:26 @aeoth I don’t put movie reviews anywhere because none will allow me to export my likes/dislikes/ratings/reviews lists (or gove API access) #
  • 15:27 down periscope now – off to run Joeys with @headwellred. Later peeps! #
  • 16:09 @agronaught cool – buying cheap FTW! Pity my super change will take over a week to be implemented 😦 #
